Can humans get norovirus from their dogs?

Human may infect our , according to research published online April 1 in the , a publication of the . That raises the possibility of dog-to-human transmission, said first author Sarah , VetMB, PhD, MRCVS, a veterinarian and PhD student at the , and Imperial College, London, UK. Norovirus is the leading cause of food-borne illness in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The research showed that some can mount an immune response to human norovirus, said Caddy, who will be aAbout Dogs at the University of Cambridge, beginning in August. “This strongly suggests that these dogs have been infected with the virus. We also confirmed that that human norovirus can bind to the cells of the canine gut, which is the first step required for infection of cells.”

Caddy and collaborators performed the latter research using non-infectious human norovirus particles, which consist solely of the virus’ outer protein, called the capsid. The capsid is the part of the virus that binds to host cells. By itself, it is non-infectious because it lacks genetic material. (The non-infectious capsid is the basis for a new norovirus vaccine which is being tested in clinical trials, said Caddy).

Nonetheless, it is not clear just how much of a problem canine infection and transmission may represent for , said Caddy. Despite dogs’ apparent susceptibility, the investigators failed to find norovirus in canine stool samples, including those dogs with diarrhea. They found it in serum samples of only about one seventh of 325 dogs tested.

Additionally, it is not yet known whether human norovirus can cause clinical disease in dogs

    if you dont teach your parrot how to say “Help me they’ve turned me into a
    parrot” then you shouldn’t even HAVE one.

    I immediately disliked the video when I saw the tiger. That person is one
    of the reasons there are much less tigers in the wild than in human homes.

    I’d say the second video was probably a rehab center. They will use tennis
    balls to exercise the bird’s feet when they are injured. I have seen videos
    of the same thing being done to bald eagles. The last video with the
    Chihuahua was not funny because I have a beagle who is food aggressive. He
    has caused bloody dogfights because he thought another one of my dogs was
    going to take his food. That behavior needs to be stopped before someone
    gets a very nasty bite.

    This isn’t really funny or cute. Many of the animals in this video are wild
    animals and shouldn’t be in the situations they’re in.
